All students can subscribe to the AJ at the great student price of £27.50 a quarter - and the next 10 subscribers will each receive a copy of Will Anderson’s ‘Homes for a Changing Climate’ (2009, Greenbooks).
Homes for a Changing Climate explores traditional and contemporary responses to the challenges of climate and illustrating the many ways in which houses can be designed, built and adapted to cope with these challenges. Examples are drawn from across Europe – from the dry volcano of Thera to the 100mph winds of the Western Isles – and from cutting edge eco-building projects in Britain. Combining inspiring case studies, striking photography and practical advice, Homes for a Changing Climate is a book of imagination and hope in difficult times.
Architecture of Changefeatures recently built and realised work that – in addition to its exceptional architectural quality – makes a notable contribution to a livable and sustainable future. The book also covers current initiatives that promote innovative research in this sector and thus encourage an emerging generation of environmentally aware architects and urban planners. Presenting over forty impressive examples of pioneering international projects that are improving our environment in real ways, the publication is a relevant reference for both a professional and general audience.
